Have to say I do agree with the previous posters comments regarding Mark Nelson. He does an excellent job having listened to many sci-fi readers, Mark is by far up there with the very best..
What I would say; this sounds like a young Mark Nelson compared to his voice on other recordings... ahhhh age it comes to us all indeed .
The official blurb on this one doesn't give much away does it! The short stories here are "almost" a themed set. The first first four are all time travel stories that appear to come from the same universe involving the para-time travellers in various capacities, from police men to miners.
Each is engaging and an absorbing listen although the stories are showing their age. For instance I find it hard to imagine a future where everyone smokes! That aside these are classic sci fi stories well written.
The last story in the set IS a short story in itself but I've heard it before as part of a bigger story. I believe the author must have expanded this short story into a full length novel at some time. I've reviewed that novel (Cosmic Computer)and gave it 9 out of 9!
The reading and production of this collection is outstanding, the reader Mark Nelson has done an outstanding job one again.
